Other points of interest[edit]


  1. After you get the yellow key, return to the west side of the walkway it was on and shoot the switch behind the chaingunner on the west side. Head east and up the steps, then north to medikits and boxes of rockets. West and south from there, you can get a megaarmor. (sector 733)
  2. Get the invulnerability on the east side of the map to open the north closets with Hell knights and revenants in them. Go into the fourth closet from the right and lower the back wall to find a cyberdemon and a megasphere. (sector 735)
